This author specialises in romance so her foray into crime fiction is an aberration, but a good one, and she should continue this series in my opinion.
I started this series with the last book rather than the first as part of my Xmas reading but rdalised I wanted to find out the history between Shelley and Silke her twin and how Shelley met Jake so needed to go back to book 1 and others.
But then found out that I had a problem – Patricia Rosemoor has written over 90 books (and counting) and the detective series is not one of her most recognised and thus it was tricky to track down the book I was looking for. I did find it eventually luckily.
What we find out from the first book is that Shelley is a Sensitive and thus can sense ‘woo woo’ as she puts it in the course of her work. She finds that many of her crime scenes have non-human creatures involved and also that Jake is not quite human either! Silke involves herself in the magic world and gets herself into a lot of trouble as a result and takes her ‘woo woo’ aspects and attributes much more seriously than Shelley. But over time and crime scenes Shelley gets less sceptical and more understanding.
The series contains the following novels:
Hot Case; Hot Trick; Hot Tales; and Hot Corpse.
But Rosemoor now uses the ‘Hot’ pre-noun for another series, which could be confusing…
I shall read some of Rosemoor’s other books at some time, but I read the entire crime series and enjoyed it.
